Hey Rob, How tall would you say that big lad is in the left?
[Editor Rob: could be 6ft 9-10 range]
Sam said on 24/Sep/15
Rob, could you add Diner, The Pope of Greenwich Village, Nine 1/2 Weeks, Barfly, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Iron Man 2 and The Immortals to his credits?
Andy said on 7/Aug/15
Apparently he's even shorter than Stallone
Rory said on 29/May/15
Rob, any chance this guy is/was taller than 5'11..or do you think its just lifts, at times with say Luke Evans and Calzaghe could pass for 6 foot, other times even 5'11 looks an exaggeration..baring in mind his age now and former lifestyle id have thought hed lost some height from his prime too.
[Editor Rob: at times he could pull off over the 5ft 11 mark, but typically I felt around it is ok for him.]
six niner said on 4/Apr/15
5'9" max, he wears lifts like Stallone.
james said on 24/Jan/15
5'11 is spot on ..probably 6'0 with shoes
cole said on 22/Jan/15
@Editor Rob: He's 62 years old, has done boxing, changed his bodyweight a lot and been in a number of action roles over the years. A bit of height loss is to be expected, right?

Has anyone seen him standing next to his russian model gf Elena ????
Shes noted as being 5'9, 1/2 most often but i also saw a 5' 10.1" as official height.
He's one of my favorite actors but thats no reason to say he's 5'10 so lets call it 6' to make an even number.Lol. Maximus !
I would say Chrisnope who actually ran into him with his gf is most accurate.
Mickey's definately shorter than his 5'9" gf Elena. He looks bout 2" shorter to me.
I guess there's hollywood height depending on camera angle, what and where he stands and who hes standing next to.
After reading Chrisnope's comment and seeing photos of mickey standing next to his girlfreind who's wearing flat sandles (Btw) I'd say he,s a small man compairing his arms and legs next to hers. Id bet money hes + or - an inch of 5' 7".
For being a fan of his tho I can go along with the rest of u and say his hollywood height is 6' - 6"2. ))
Jordan said on 9/Dec/14
He was a soilid inch on Mike Tyson who cant be under 5'9.5 ( Especially with Mike.

I would put Rourke no shorter than 5'10.5, and no taller than 5'11.5.
Maximus said on 29/Nov/14
Right at 5'11" is a good estimate...doesn't come across as short on let get real...5'11" is very close to 6' 5'11" is just as good as 6' for Hollywood standards.

Charlie you will always be "The Pope of Greenwich Village".

jtm said on 28/May/14
has always looked 5'10? look at the pictures with michael madsen in 2005. the majority on madsen's page believe his peak height was 6'2-6'2.5.
Ted said on 6/Feb/14
Has always looked 5'10".
Yves said on 23/Nov/13
I would say 5'11.25.
Chameleon said on 22/Aug/13
This really suprised me after seeing Sin City where he appears huge haha
cole said on 21/Aug/13
@Editor Rob: Ok. It's not that I don't believe he's a solid 180 cm man, he probably is, but I just remembered seeing him listed 5'10 somewhere, might not have been on celebheights then.
cole said on 31/Jul/13
Didn't you have him at 5'10 before Rob?
[Editor Rob: I checked a 2008 database and he was 5ft 11 then, but before that I'm not sure]
CL said on 5/May/13
I've met Mickey on multiple occasions in the past 10 years (think nightlife in LA). He's a strong 5'11". The last time I saw him, he was wearing his cowboy boots making him well over 6', but I've also been standing next to him in sneakers where he's always at least an inch taller than me (5'10").
Mike 181 said on 19/Apr/13
Also is listed 5"11 on boxrec
Julian St. Pierre said on 9/Mar/13
I dont think that he was ever over 5.11. Current height is 5.10 tops. People saying he looked tall in the Wrestler, well that is b/c he was huge and muscular, and was probably weighing in at 240 #, plus the supporting actors were short.
Julian St. Pierre said on 9/Mar/13
How can Mickey Rourke ( unless he has gotten taller with middle age) be 5.11 and Steve Guttenberg be 5.10 when SG is the taller of the two in The Diner? He is only slightly taller, but he is.
mike 181cm said on 13/Jan/13
Listed 5"11 on boxrec. Base on that pic with 50 cent I think 50 cent can be 181.6-182 range so 50 claiming 6" is fair
tom said on 20/Dec/12
5-10" is more real world imo.
juju said on 17/Dec/12
no way 6-0 or even 5-11. 5-10. hes shorter than bruce willis and had an inch on 5-10 matt dillon in RUMBLE FISH, but due to his cowboy boots he was sporting.
MHouillon said on 18/Nov/12
182cm (5'11.5)
Chrisnope said on 13/Nov/12
While in Los Angeles for a meeting-I was walking out of the hotel Mondrian back in 2002. I tripped and fell into a lovely guy who caught me and made sure I was alright- I looked up to see Mickey Rourke!! He called me 'bro.' Super nice guy. No way he's 5'11 however. I'd say 5'6'. Definately my height or probably shorter (according to my wife who was standing there)-Im 5'8' in a half bare foot.
logan noll 1996 said on 10/Nov/12
I always thought he was a 6 footer. He's 60 years old so he might have shrunk an inch.
Donovan said on 21/Sep/12
He is best known for the movie : 9 and a half weeks ! Please add that to the describtion King Rob ! Thankx
Johnnyfive said on 13/Sep/12
Wow, a lot of people claiming 5'10 for Rourke, if that's the case then 50 Cent needs a downgrade to 5'10.5.

Sword said on 7/Sep/12
He looks like more 5'10 in The Wrestler near 5'6 Evan Rachel Wood.
C10TIm said on 25/Aug/12
This guy was as tall or taller than most of the cast in the wrestler, he's above average 5'11 seems about perfect
matt678 said on 17/Aug/12
in the expendables red carpet event in 2010 in one picture he looked about an inch taller then stallone so mabye hes more like 5 foot 10 then 5 foot 11
LG69 said on 31/Jul/12
sam said on 8/Oct/07
He usually looks 6 foot, in my judgement, but im wondering if glenn knew this was him right off the bat, he's a little different, still looks tall though!
Anonymous said on 8/Aug/07
are you blind?, his shoulders are way higher than glenn's. not that glenn is that short but Mickey is blatently taller.
Anonymous said on 24/May/07
His shoulders are at the same height as Glenn's shoulders, maybe a bit shorter. I can't see him over 5'9.25.
smoov said on 16/May/07
"Sometimes I see pictures of him and he looks like a 5ft 8 guy, but in reality he is about 5ft 11 these days" where did that come from? Did he take off his shoes and whip out a tape measure for you?
Franco said on 2/Apr/07
with glenn, he doesnt look more than 5'10

he looks scary though, too bad cause my sister thought he was amazingly sexy when young, now after the surgery he looks like Linda Blair - The Exorcist. wd mickey.

@editor rob: forget about that pic, Vin Diesel always wears totally ridiculous shoes
tank said on 11/Mar/07
5'11" seems a little tall for him but i can believe it. i think tupac was actually about an inch taller than what he's listed. the pics with tupac are probably why people are thinking rourke is shorter than 5'11". he's probably 5'11" and tupac's about 5'10". in the movie bullet they looked about the same height and build. he was A LOT leaner and thinner in that movie than he is now. after that movie he started bulking up quite a bit. seems like a pretty cool guy. i like the characters he plays.
Paul said on 2/Dec/06
Correct link is Click Here

Paul said on 1/Dec/06

[Editor Rob: Rourke's a relative dwarf, I mean '5ft 10' Vin Diesel Towers him...]
Glenn said on 29/Nov/06
Rourke is a legit 5-11.just got a recent pic where he looks 6-1 in boots.
Ed said on 24/Nov/06
I watched the Rainmaker last night, and Rourke and Matt Damon are the exact same height. I'm guessing 5ft10 or a little more with shoes (5ft9 barefoot), and some serious heels for a lot of his other films. He does tend to wear cowboy boots and motorcycle boots a lot. In Sin City he did look big, but once again he wore big thick industrial boots and special fx prosthetics to play Marv, Marv was a beast in the Frank Miller comics.
Anonymous said on 31/Oct/06
He looks the listed height in Body Heat near 6'2" William Hurt.
Jordan said on 29/Aug/06
IN SIn City the guy looked well over 6'0 I guess they worked the camera angles
Lmeister said on 9/Aug/06
Glenn was Mickey wearing boots when U met him?
Nolifts81 said on 13/Jun/06
Maybe Dillon has grown. Nowadays Dillon is a little bit taller than Rourke.Almost 1 inch
TJ said on 13/Jun/06
Maybe because when Rumble Fish was filmed Matt was 17-18 and subsequently grew a little more?
Nolifts81 said on 11/Jun/06
Yes he is 5'11". But how is possible that in "Rumble fish" he is 1 inch taller than 5'11.5 Matt Dillon? He had lifts in the shoes in that movie?Dillon is a little bit taller than him!
dmeyer said on 12/May/06
in movie like domino he looks a solid 5'11
kyle said on 17/Mar/06
5'11" sounds about right, yes Rourke was a boxer and was always listed at 5'11". I am a boxer too and am listed always at 6'0" tall. before bouts they measure you without footwear on.
celeb said on 19/Feb/06
i know for fakt that rourke is 5"11 bacause he has been a boxer and they stated him as 180cm than, and in sports like amatuer boxing they never lie.

[Editor Rob: yes, he was listed 5ft 11 during boxing days, he has a record on boxrec...]
Lmeister said on 16/Feb/06
BTW Mickey is always wearing boots in Premiers etc...I think 5'9'' would be closer to his real height...
tgri said on 14/Feb/06
yes he looks 5'11 to me . he had on lifts in sin city and he looked about 6'2 .
King said on 14/Feb/06
I seen a lot of pics with Pac and Rourke together, they were friends??? anywho..Pac is measured on this site at 5'9" but when I seen these pics of him and Rourke they looked even.
Glenn said on 19/Jan/06
he looked 5-11.great guy too.
elio said on 19/Jan/06
Hmm.. personally I'd say he was looking more like 5'10" in Glenn's picture. The difference between him and Glenn is about the same (maybe even half an inch less) as the difference between Glenn and Stallone.

poor stance in this pic perhaps?
CelebHeights Editor said on 19/Jan/06
Glenn and Rourke added...
Glenn said on 17/Jan/06 coming.

In the 90's Rourke went to Argentine (south america) to a boxing exibition (?). There he stood besides a popular TV showman called Marcelo Tinelli (187 cm, aprox. 6.15-6.2). Rourke didnīt reach the level of the ear of the guy. I think heīs 5.9 .
ladada said on 6/Dec/05
tupac could of been two people, some say he was 5'7 .. some say 5'11 .. if you compare tupac to snoop dogg from an old MTV video, it's odd.. snoop is 6'3 but is near a foot taller then Pac.. but mug shots show Pac to be 5'11 .. it's all related back to when he was first shot
dmeyer said on 30/Nov/05
you right rob he does look aleast 180 cm
Anonymous said on 24/Oct/05
In the movie double team he is van dammes height, he definitely didnt look 5'11" next to tupac, as he was the same height as him, although tupac did claim to be 5'11" aswell, but I think that was definitely incorrect
Nino said on 26/Aug/05
180cm is the right height for Mickey. But I am sure that in the past he has often weared elevator shoes. If you watch the movie "Harley Davidson and Marlboro man" with Don Johnson he towered over Don. He was nearly 4 inches taller and apparently they weared the same kind of cowboy boots. Don is listed at 5'10" and Mickey is for sure 5'11" but the height difference is too much.The solutions are two: Don Johnson isn't 5'10" but 5'8" or mickey in his cowboy boots weared 2 or 2,5 lifts inside. What do you think editor?
The Jackal said on 21/Aug/05
I saw a picture of him standing next to Tupac in the '90's. Now Tupac is a 5'7" or 5'8", tops. And he and Mickey Rourke were almost shoulder-to-shoulder.

Then again, in "Get Carter", he gets close to Stallone. They seem very close, as well. And Sly is a 5'9" with his elevator-shoes on and Rourke had MAYBE an inch or two on him.

I'd put Mickey Rourke at 5'10" or an inch less, depending. His shoes in "Sin City" make me confident in this. Maybe he got his elevator-boots from his friend, Sly? ;)
Anonymous said on 23/Jun/05
hes in between 5'11'' and 6' for sure
Lmeister said on 3/Mar/05
I think that is the right height. He def. aint a short guy sometimes he is just wearing shoes like sandals they make him look shorter and so does carrying his dog aswell 'cause he has to slouch a bit and it seems that he carries the dog almost all the time.
